Get After It: So Sad Too Funny

By
Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476

"A loyal friend laughs at your jokes

when they're not so funny,

and sympathizes with your problems

when they're not so sad."


~ Psychologist, Arnold Glasgow

Your action for today

is to contact an old friend

and reconnect with them.

Having just lost a friend on Easter Sunday, 

I've been doing this a lot.

I ponder why that's what it took

to motivate me.

How often do we say to ourselves "I need to contact _______", but then we don't and it becomes too late. Do it when you're thinking about it!

Thomas - I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. And yes - why do we always say “I need to call ____” and then don’t. My list is long of people I will make it a point to contact

Kathy Streib thank you and yep to you and Carol Williams, these days when I think of "them" I call or text them on the spot. My sister and my son are the #1 beneficiaries of that theory.

I'm sorry for the recent loss of your friend, Thomas.  We often lose people that we sometimes assume will be around forever.

When people are sad I try to make them laugh so that they will have a smile on their faces and start thinking about things that make them happy rather than things that make them sad.

Myrl Jeffcoat thank you so much and so true, we were close in age and true friends, so it hits harder because it brings up my own mortality.

So sorry tt hear about the loss of your friend Thomas.  I know that feeling as we lost a dear friend last Thanksgiving and I can hear her laughter quite often and see her smile light up a room. Her joy lives on... and I'm sure you'll remember your friend fondly too. I've been enjoying connecting with so many people I haven't seen  during the covid mess and it's been so nice......it's a good thing!
